Although Google’s Street View has always been a part of the Google Maps, now Google has brought some changes to its Maps and Street View services. The two are getting separated. Google is now rolling out a full app for its Street View platform with v2.0. Street View 2.0 will now be a Standalone app and it will have its own distinct functionalities and features. The update has been rolling out regionally on Play Store and many users across the globe claimed to have received the update.
Street View features linked spherical camera support. This feature reminds us of the spherical camera rigs project, that Google talked about at I/O 2015. Although you may not have the spherical rig cameras, you can still use the app to create and upload photo spheres. Street View 2.0 features a built-in camera feature, using which you get the ability to click photo spheres using your Android device. However, this feature needs gyroscope built in your phone. But that’s not a problem because most handset comes with a gyroscope.
Another good feature Street View sports is that you can explore all the 360-degree content served by Google via Google Maps and other such content applications. Street View provides a way to capture 360-degree photos with just one click using the linked, spherical cameras or through your phone. You can publish your captured content like photo spheres to Google Maps and help people discover new places.
Street View basically has all the features from its native app with some tweaks over its user interface. The icon has been changed and is a bit similar to the new Google Maps icon. Street View 2.0 is not available to all just yet, but it will pop up soon enough in your Play Store. If you want the app right away, then the app is available on APKMirror with Google Signatures on it and can be installed without any problem. You can still wait for Google to release the update for your region. Meanwhile, you can get the latest available version of Street View.
